      Hello,
      I tried to post a advert on gumtree, so have an idea of rom available and price. I got lot of answer from people, but so far, it all seems scam. (Like first email in euro and in Dublin, second they are talking about pounds and London…. or thing like send money). I didnt really want to book nothing, specially over the Internet, just wanted to have an idea of rooms rental price!

      Do you suggest to book a room in a hostel and then try to find a flat?

      Thank all for your answer!

        Hi there,

        Try daft.ie if you’re looking to rent a room.. Its one of the bigger accommodation sites and probably more trustworthy.

        Good luck:)

            I’d err on the side of caution (be careful) with Gumtree, their ads aren’t checked by staff before going live and with only 10 staff (according to their ‘about us’ page) checking ads for 60 Gumtree sites there seems to be quite a few scammers managing to get past staff.

            Ideally you should try get an apartment before you move (so you don’t have to worry about that after you arrive) but lots and lots of people have gone the hostel then flat route.

            Like Nicole says try daft.ie – especially their ‘Roomate’ section http://www.daft.ie/searchsharing.daft

                hello my friend
                guess finding a flat is not that easy in Ireland
                but if you get the evening herald here in dublin when it first appears usually that the best way of finding a flat in dublin…
                dont mind going to other sites as you dont know whom has put in that advert my friend and it could be a scam.
                best to get a hostel for a couple of nights and look for a flat during that time
                Cheers my friend and the best of luck flat hunting yeah.:)

                    expect to pay 500 euro a month roughlor there abouts for a flat in dublin
                    give or take a dollar or two yeah:) Landlords will ask for a month in advance too in most cases…
                    a us dollar is about 2/3 of a euro And a euro is about roughly 2/3 a pound stirling..
                    not quite exact but nearly there about my friend…
